    Description

    SIX OUTSTANDING PANORAMIC SILVER PRINTS OF MORENCI, ARIZONA ca 1900. Six amazing and extremely unusual 20.75" x 6.25" images of the copper mining town of Morenci, Arizona during its heyday. The Morenci Mine, the largest copper mining operation in North America, is one of the largest copper mines in the world and is clearly visible in several of these images, as is Western Copper, another Morenci mine. Views also include panoramic shots of the town and some of its important buildings, including the three-story Club and School Building. Also included in this lot are two 6.5" x 4.75" silver prints of a hillside home on the edge of town, its proud owners posing outside for the unknown photographer. Overall size of panoramic photographs, 22" x 8"; overall size of smaller images, 9" x 7". All images are in fine to very fine condition, although there are several barely noticeable pencil marks filling in tiny bare/light spots on several of the large-format shots, and a few stains/water spots on backing boards.
